INTRODUCTION 

Franklin Ellis (deceased 1885) the author of the large 902 page book, History of Monmouth County, New Jersey, (1885,) 
also wrote the histories of two counties in New York State, two in Pennsylvania and one in Michigan. Mr. Ellis assisted the 
compiler, James P. Snell, in the preparation of the History of Hunterdon and Somerset Counties, New Jersey published by 
J.B. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia, printed by Everts & Peck Press of Philadelphia, 1881. It is not known how many copies 
of the History of Monmouth County, New Jersey were printed, but it is well known to historians that this book contains a 
very great collection of Monmouth County memorabilia. 

This index is unique because it is useful even without reference to the book. History of Monmouth County, New Jersey by 
Ellis. The Ellis Index has thousands of items of interest to genealogists and historians. There are dates and references to the 
inhabitants, the formation of towns and townships, churches, schools, lodges and numerous other facts pertaining to the 
history of Monmouth County. Although the History of Monmouth County, New Jersey is out of print, a copy is a treasured 
possession of many Monmouth County individuals and county libraries as well as libraries in other parts of New Jersey and 
the United States. When, infrequently, a copy is for sale a present day historian will eagerly pay a high price for the 
opportunity to add the book to his collection. 

The compiler of this index to the History of Monmouth County, New Jersey was Norma Lippincott Swan, the daughter of 
Webster and Elizabeth Mount Swan. Miss Swan was born in Navesink, New Jersey, in a pre-revolutionary house where she 
lived most of her life. Her father owned the village store and was the local postmaster. A progenitor of Miss Swan's family was 
in winter quarters at Jockey Hollow while General Washington was in residence at the Ford mansion in nearby Morristown 
during the Revolution. 

Miss Swan was a victim of muscular dystrophy and was confined to a wheelchair for many years before she died on June 
27, 1957 at the age of 84. It was during this period of her life that she compiled the Ellis Index . Miss Swan studied at 
Goucher College, Baltimore, and at Oxford University, England. She was a teacher at Chattle High School in Long Branch, a 
writer on historical and educational subjects, an adviser to the Colonial Antiques Association, and active in muscular 
dystrophy work in Monmouth County. Among Miss Swan's achievements were an index to From Indian Trail To Electric Rail 
by Thomas Henry Leonard and an article on the North American Phalanx published in the May 1935 Monmouth County 
Historical Association Bulletin . 

Miss Swan collected old mantels and her articles on mantels and on remodeling old houses appeared in many magazines. 
She was a zealous gardener and trained a young boy to do the work of caring for her flowers, berries and vegetables. 

Miss Dorothy Ingling of Red Bank who supplied some of the information about Miss Swan knew her well and said that she 
was a woman of indomitable spirit, and that when she could no longer hold a pencil, she continued her work by dictating to a 
stenographer. After Miss Ingling introduced Miss Swan to the Rev. Dr. Ralph Washington Sockman, he preached a sermon 
about Miss Swan over Radio Station NBC and told of her influence in the community and her aliveness in spite of her 
handicap. Dr. Peter J. Guthorn, M.D., of Brielle, a Monmouth County historian, and a very great admirer of Miss Swan, 
contributed to this brief biography. 

Miss Swan gave her original typewritten copy of the Ellis Index to Samuel Stelle Smith of Monmouth Beach, a friend with 
whom she had done historical research. The only other excant copy of the Ellis Index is a corrected manuscript in the 
Monmouth County Historical Association Library, Freehold. 

In 1969 Mr. Smith, a noted historian, and the author and publisher of many books about the history of Monmouth 
County and the Revolution, suggested that the Jerseyana Club of Shrewsbury Boro School publish Miss Swan's Ellis Index . 
Many avenues were explored, but the cost of such an undertaking was prohibitive for the thirty members of the club. 
However, in February 1970 Robert Stewart, Research Librarian at the Eastern Branch Library, Shrewsbury, said the work of 
composing could be done Inexpensively on an IBM Composer and the Brookdale Community College, Lincroft had such a 
machine. An interview was arranged with Dr. Ervin L. Harlacher, President, and Howard Richmond, Director of Learning 
Resources at Brookdale. Also present to discuss the project of publishing the Ellis Index were Senior Committee members 
Miss Louise Jost and Mrs. Walter King, advisors to the Jerseyana Club, and Mr. Stewart. 

Dr. Harlacher was receptive to the idea of publishing the Ellis Index as a joint community project with the club and after 
Mr. Richmond said the idea was feasible, agreed to the use of the facilities of Brookdale College to do the composing and 
printing. 

The preparation of the Ellis Index for printing was done on an IBM "Selectric" composer by Mary Fiorillo and Janice 
Ludig of Brookdale, Mrs. James Amend of Colts Neck and John Towers of Little Silver. At Brookdale the art work was done 
by Maria Kavalos, supervisor, with Johanna Ericson assisting. Student assistants were James Brandigan, Carol Logito and 
Susan Witscher. In the print shop, Robert Schultz supervised the work of David Marshall, Victor Filepp and Tony Baker. The 
Director of Media Development at Brookdale, Charles Burton, was in charge of all phases of the work done at Brookdale. 



The project of publishing the Ellis Index received the complete approval and support of Curtis Bradley, Principal of 

the Shrewsbury School. 

The most important job undertaken by the Jerseyana Club members was the proof reading. This time consuming task was 
done after school hours and during summer vacations, under the guidance of Miss Jost and Mrs. King. After the printing was 
completed in the Brookdale Community College printshop, the club members arranged and collated the sheets for the final 
step of binding the Ellis Index done by the Country Bindery in Colts Neck, New Jersey. 

In addition the boys and girls will work with the senior committee members on publicity, advertising, sales and 
distribution of the 500 copies of the First Edition of the Ellis Index. Elected to be in charge of these operations were Carol 
Ann and Dianne Siciliano, secretaries, and Gail Kezer, treasurer. 

When the club voted to become a part of the Shrewsbury Historical Society in June 1972 Gerald Beer became the advisor 
to the Jerseyana Club and a member of the Senior Committee. 

Following is a list of Jerseyana Club members who worked diligently for three years towards the publication of the Ellis 
Index.
